Hi guys I want to buy some stuff from The Old town shaving in the US. But they cant use my credit card as its not one from the US and does not have a US address associated with it. 


Any input for Aussie buyers? All I want is to buy it and get it shipped here. Or happy to pay someone via paypal if they can buy on my behalf and ship to Aus.

Sounds like a policy of the shop or their payment processor. Try using PayPal with a US forwarding address.

Have you spoken to your credit card company?  If I order internationally, and don's use PayPal, I usually have to call my credit card company and give them details about the vendor and the purchase so they won't decline the purchase or tag my card with fraud.  I just made a purchase internationally the other day and had to have a five minute conversation with the credit card company on one line and the vendor on the other.  It went through smoothly.  The item arrive yesterday safely.

I found it easier to actually call and talk with the vendor instead of e-mailing or messaging.  Many stores and credit card companies do have policies that the credit card billing address and shipping address have to be the same.  But, if you personally explain what it is you are trying to do, they can often bypass those policies. 

Oh, I have also found that if you have the vendor key in the charge manually, while on the phone, instead of placing the order via their website, they can often get the approval to go through since the shipping address isn't entered into their machine.  That way it doesn't send up as many red flags.

As for Old Town Shaving, I don't think they take PayPal.

Shipito does assisted shopping. You pay shipito with your CC, and they do your shopping for you from an USaccount to a USaddress. Then they forward you your products.
